I thought it would be straightforward editing of the map encounters thing, but there's no option... seemed to have been an MV plugin once, but no longer, and with this being MZ...

(Edited title to specify)

That's for all battles or one battle, right? I would more like to change it for just one map...

then you would need to place the command to change it in an erasing autorun on that map so that it is changed to that music on entering the map, and edit all transfer events out of the map to change it back when leaving the map.

Create an event with no graphic & put it in a convenient place. Many people put it top left corner out of the way.

Andar mistyped the setting for the event. It is not autorun, but parallel process. Parallel processes run the moment the map starts to load so there is no delay, and do not interfere with player movement etc.

Event Command menu tab 3
Select Change Battle BGM and select the track you want.
Event Command menu tab 2
Select Erase event. What this does is run the event once when you enter the map and never again unless you re-enter the map.

That's it.

Instead of erasing event I would simply turn it off with self switch.

completely wrong
if it is erase the event will run again if the map is reloaded (re-entered)
if you switch it off, it will never run again - only the first time the player enters the map

Turning a specific vibe into reality is incredibly difficult. For instance, this song is one of the ones I listen to when working on my post apocalyptic project, and getting it's "feeling" into the game has been a real challenge.

I don't just wanna regurgitate the numbers I see, I wanna actually understand the calculations I'm making so I'm probably gonna make a post later with some calculations and what I THINK they mean to get some advice and corrections.

Edit: All (Most) of these will be tested in game prior. I just wanna make sure I understand what's going on under the hood if you will.
my girlfriend calls all my little chibi art cute lol... funny considering that wasn't the original art style of the game.
